Online Submission of Work Regulations
All employers who employ ten or more employees in Thailand are legally required to issue and announce work regulations in such workplace as stipulated by the Labor Protection Act, B. E. 2541 ( the “Act”). These work regulations prescribe at least those particulars as specified by the Act, including the working hours and days, holidays and leaves of absence, termination of employment, disciplinary conducts, disciplinary actions, severance and special severance payment. Once work regulations are issued, they must also be submitted to local labor officials within seven days of the date of announcement.
To submit work regulations online, the employer will have to first register to receive a username and password. The date on which the work regulation is deemed to be submitted is the date on which the work regulations is displayed in the Department of Labor Protection and Welfare’s host system.
Failure to prepare and submit work regulations to local labor officials may subject the employer and its responsible directors to a maximum fine of Baht 20,000.
